    Can someone walk me through setting up a linux vps server security wise? I'll be running openVPN for a VPN so how should I set it up? I may also run a TOR exit node it, is it safe to do so with openVPN?

    http://www.zentyal.org/ looks great just what I need. Do you have any experience with it?

    I knew about CentOS.

    as a gateway i tried but as server i never set so not much idea about it.

    by the way what kinda server you planning to set :)

    clearos is base on centos 6 same just they add gui thing to make it more simple

    and zentyal is base on debian

    Going to order a few VPS servers in different countries like Sweeden, Iceland etc.. and configure them as a vPN and TOR exit node, Strong firewall and no logs is my plan :)

    Cool that's good news, I was going to go with debian 64 anyway. Though I'm not sure they will install zentyal on it o_O

    Here's one server install that claims to have everything pre-configured, so you don't have to mess around with security as much. I can't vouch for the security however, because I've never used it.

    There's another one but the name is escaping me. I'll look it up when I get home and post it back.
